Marion County Park District

Naturally wild, naturally fun!

The Marion County Park District, in north central Ohio, includes five beautiful parks.

Marion Tallgrass Trail: The paved multi-use recreational trail is now 11 miles long, and will approach 12.4 miles (Hardin County line) by the end of 2017. As we seek to finish the trail, we are actively seeking matching funds, so please consider a donation.

Terradise Nature Preserve, in eastern Marion County, offers a shelter house, hiking trails, geocaching, and peaceful reflection near the beautiful Olentangy River.

Greenspur, north of Prospect, features woods, a small wetland pond, and will contain a picnic shelter.

Myers Woods, near the Killdeer Plains Wildlife area in northern Marion County, is a wonderful place to take a short stroll in the quiet woods.

Caledonia Nature Preserve is a beautiful streamside forest near the village of Caledonia.

Tallgrass Trail Update:

 

The paved trail is now paved for 11 miles, from the trailhead at 2093 Holland Road West, across SR 37, stopping near Riley Road.

 

We have been awarded an additional grant that will allow us to build more trail in 2017, and have contracted with Park Enterprise Construction Company to build this stretch. This will take the trail to the Hardin County line, making a total distance of 12.44 miles.
